A year on the road with Ida Kelarová. This lively, half-Romany, half Czech musician is permanently on the road. She gives workshops in Prag, looks after the interests of Gypsies in the Slovak and Czech Republics, and each year, she organizes the big "Gypsy Celebration Festival" at Svojanov Castle. Her life philosophy is as simple as it is infectious. Art is to open everyone to transform energy into music and to liberate sadness.
